Bacon Cheese Potatoes

The other day I mentioned on my Walking on Sunshine Facebook page that I was trying a new recipe for Bacon Cheese Potatoes for dinner.  I was pretty excited about it and shared with everyone a picture as a tease for today's post.

AND a lot of my friends and followers started getting excited as well.  And I'm still pretty excited because it turned out really good.  Actually better than good.
And it was so easy and you make these potatoes in your CROCK POT.

Bacon Cheese Potatoes Recipe

Start layering everything in the crock pot, beginning with the potatoes, then the bacon and cheese, sprinkling with salt and pepper in between each layer.

Cover with aluminum foil and then cover with the lid to your crock pot.  Cook on low for 6 to 8  hours or on high for 4 to 6 hours.

Transfer the potatoes from the crock pot to a serving dish, top with fresh parsley or chopped green onions and get ready to enjoy the most DELICIOUS potato casserole ever. 
I was really skeptical with this recipe.  I did not think it would work and I will be making this again soon.  I can see making this for a large group of people.

Bacon Cheese Potatoes

prep time: 15 MINScook time: 4 hourtotal time: 4 hours and 15 mins


  • 1/4 pound bacon, diced
  • 1/2 medium onion; sliced
  • 4 medium red potatoes thinly sliced
  • 1/2 pound grated cheddar cheese
  • salt and pepper; to taste
  • 2 to 4 TBS butter


  1. Begin by lining your crock pot with aluminum foil. I sprayed my crock pot liner with non-stick cooking spray first and then lined it with the aluminum foil.
  2. Slice the potatoes.
  3. Dice the bacon, if you are adding it raw, OR dice the pre-cooked bacon.
  4. Start layering everything in the crock pot, beginning with the potatoes, then the bacon and cheese, sprinkling with salt and pepper; I was able to get three layers.
  5. Dot the top layer with the 2 tbs. of butter.
  6. Cover with another piece of foil AND THEN THE CROCK POT LID and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or on high for 4 to 6 hours.
  1. You can either pre-cook your bacon or put it in raw. I have tried it both ways and like it better pre-cooked. I always cook my bacon in the oven...less mess!
  2. My crock pot cooks really fast and I always check after 2 hours and if the potatoes are fork tender, I know they're ready.

  6. I actually think I am going to go make this right now. I was looking for something to make in the crockpot!

  7. I WAS on a diet!!!
    Not any more...

  8. Dear Lois, These potatoes sound delish!!
    What could be better than bacon, potatoes and cheese put together.
    I want to wish you a wonderful Mother's Day weekend.
    Thank you for your visit. I always look forward to them. Blessings dear friend. Catherine xoxo

  9. I just unthawed some bacon... I am going to have to make these tomorrow. My Hubs loves potatoes and bacon, but I have never made them together for him. Thanks for the recipe

  10. This looks perfect...I adore using my having a meal ready at the end of the day when I'm about ready to drop.
    Supper is my most difficult meal; I'm always exhausted and settle for a PB&J sandwich or cheese & cracker.

  11. Lois,

    Just how did you know that I was looking for a new side dish? Imagine these with BBQ spareribs!?! I read a recipe yesterday for a rub for meat and I plan on trying it tommorrow and grilling the pork.
    Favorite piece of clothing - I have white knit legging pants that I have had for nearly ten years. They are awesome and unless they become unwearable I am NOT getting rid of them. They are light weight and thin and feel like you are wearing nearly nothing but your legs don't get cold and they don't bind and or pinch and I can sleep in them and wear them around to house (only) to do chores or watch TV or... My daughter likes them also and it is becoming a battle as to who gets them first.
    Love the hand sanitizer sign and want to make one for the restroom at church.
    Hope all is well and you are finally rid of what ever your stomache problem was.
